TECH Perspectives Online | Part 2: Challenges of implementing, managing, and measuring Digital Twin solutions

This is the continuation of our discussion with Microsoft, CallisonRTKL, and Stantec in our webinar series in 2021. The panel discussion focuses on the challenges of implementing, managing, and measuring Digital Twin solutions.

TECH Perspectives Online | Part 1: Leveraging Digital Twin Technology

What is a digital twin? What elements define it? When can and should we apply this technology? What makes it so powerful? And how will its adoption influence our design process and ultimately our buildings and cities? Hear Microsoft, Callison RTKL, and Stantec show how they’re developing a digital twin strategy that harnesses the convergence of the digital and physical worlds.

Watch our video recording of this first part of our webinar series from April 2021.
